1250 to 1251 fails on workspace backup step


Seems to sucessfully install everything, says "finishing..." Then I get "Error backing up workspaces." and when I hit OK I get "Installation Failure, see ... log for details." Log seems to indicate same idea.

- snip -

making a backup of the workspaces folder

copyFile FAILED with result: 1024

Send the error info to the database, and see if you got back a better error message.








serialNumber=[deleted for privacy]







result from php: Error backing up workspaces.

Error backing up workspaces.

- end snip -

I tried disk utility, permissions, etc. Any suggestions?

ok, solved my own problem. Looked in workspace forlder, there were five backup folders, each with only three of my various workspace files. The only ones NOT copied were (I'm embarassed to admit) the ones with bad characters in the file name; eg "SPA for 23" monitor" and the like. I manually changed the names to have no odd characters and reran the update, all went fine.
